LIVE TASTING: 16th OCTOBER, 8PM LIVE, OR ON CATCH-UP
We host a tasting show which you can watch live, if you order before mid-day on 11th October, or watch on YouTube afterwards at your convenience.
Tasting Kit ships around 5 days before the tasting, Royal Mail will let you know when it's on its way.
From the beautifully aromatic white wines of Alto Adige to the rich, expressive and classic reds from Piedmont - Northern Italy is home to some serious vinous superstars. With the Alps as a backdrop for much of this region it is little wonder; they are extreme, but sheltered, and the vineyards are often difficult to work with. All of these factors make for something special.But that is not all for October! We are also partnering with Pong Cheese to bring you a brilliant night of both wine AND cheese! Ben from Pong Cheese will talk you through their October club box, and Jamie & Alex will talk through how to create a perfect wine and cheese pairing. Great Italian wines with a great cheeseboard - what are you waiting for? Order your boxes now!
Our tasting packs contain SIX wines of 100ml samples, perfect for two to share.
Live or on catch-up video after the event.
The Adventurer Series
Our Adventurer Series is perfect for people who feel they know their way around a wine shop, but want to take the next step and explore the differences a great winemaker can have on a wine, learn about lesser-known grapes and find the hidden value around the world.
You'll probably already know the common grape varieties and have some favourite regions, but this remains a great fun, approachable course. We'll explain what the different terms you'll find on a label are, how to taste like a pro, and learn how to master a restaurant wine list! We'll also teach you about food pairings and why things work so well together (or don't!).
Based at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust's Level 2/3 point, this is a great way to take your appreciation of wine to the next level, to demystify wine, to build confidence in choosing wines and to discover some incredible new wines that you may never have even considered before.
We'll teach you all about how these wines are made, what makes them special and we'll highlight a few of the things to watch out for in the wine world and you will have a great time too as it's a mix of entertainment and education!
On this advanced level course, we also introduce a winemaking or grape-growing concept every month.
Either join our LIVE and interactive online tasting (around 90 minutes) where you can ask your own questions, or watch the recording at your own pace, whenever and wherever is convenient for you.
